    Well I thought I bricked my Captivate.... I have been told that you cannot do so. well here is my situation.
    I just purchased a Samsung Captivate, I unboxed it today and got everything up and running. While installing I had a problem, the first few apps I loaded on went smooth. I added Facebook, Twitter, LastPass, Prey and I updated Google Maps all with no problem. I then attempted to install Shazam and before the installation could complete there was an error message which I did not have time to write down before the device power cycled. Immediately after the device rebooted all the AT&T splash screen loaded and then the screen went blank for a few seconds and then unfortunatly that cycle repeated splash screen then black. The battery was not fully charged however I did not get a low battery indicator however I did place the phone on the charger until it said 100% on the green battery that comes on the screen. I once again attempted to bootup to the same screen/reboot process. So I did some research of my own and figured out how to load the Samsung Recovery Utils so I held both the up and down buttons and pressed power voila system recovery I think I'm on the right track. Having just gotten the phone and only loading one contact into it so far I determine that I should delete all user data. I attempted this and wiped the device followed by a reboot. Upon powering back up the same screen/reboot process begins again.
    SO I then attempted to reload the factory boot rom with no success... I have installed the drivers and connected to the device in recovery mode. I have used Odin3 1 click Installer. It successfully copied the files to the device I connected everything in download mode yet still am unable to boot my device
    HELP!!! LOL Thanks in advance
